  Such applause and action have occurred many times in the past 19 years.

  On October 15, 2003, astronaut Yang Liwei set off from here and soared into the sky, realizing the thousand-year dream of flying into the sky of the Chinese nation.

  On October 12, 2005, astronauts Fei Junlong and Nie Haisheng set off on the snow, creating the history of multi-person and multi-day flight in China.

  On September 25, 2008, astronauts Zhai Zhigang, Liu Boming, and Jing Haipeng set off from here and realized the first space walk, flying the five-star red flag high in the vast space.

  In 2012, astronauts Jing Haipeng, Liu Wang, and Liu Yang set off from here, completed the manual rendezvous and docking mission with the Chinese precision of space needles, and entered Tiangong-1.

  On June 11, 2013, astronauts Nie Haisheng, Zhang Xiaoguang, and Wang Yaping embarked on the road of flying into the sky, and carried out China's first space lecture, sowing the seeds of science and dreams in the hearts of young people...

  Today, the new astronauts set off again to win the sky.

The pace of Chinese people going to the vast universe has never stopped.

  Commander Fei Junlong, after 17 years, led the expedition again.

Recalling the scene of the stormy expedition back then, he felt emotional and vivid. He said, let the snowflakes all over the sky be regarded as fireworks for us.

Today, still in winter, he is still so calm and confident, maintaining the "youthful state" of Feitian.

  Astronaut Deng Qingming is the only active astronaut who has never been in space, and today he finally realized his dream.

For 25 years, he has adhered to his original intention of flying to the sky and never stopped training, just for the current flying.

  Astronaut Zhang Lu set off for the first time, and his steps were sonorous.

With Ling Yunzhi in his heart and stars in his hands, he has been training for 12 years for this day.

The vastness of the starry sky is fascinating, and the endless exploration is exciting.

Today, full of longing, he embarks on the journey of flying into the sky.

  "Comrade Commander-in-Chief, we are ordered to carry out the manned flight mission of Shenzhou 15, and the preparations are complete, please give instructions!" Astronaut Fei Junlong reported sonorously.

  "Astronaut Deng Qingming." "Astronaut Zhang Lu."

  "Let's go!" Xu Xueqiang, the commander-in-chief of China's manned spaceflight project and the commander-in-chief of the space station phase mission, issued an order to go out.

  Astronauts Fei Junlong, Deng Qingming, and Zhang Lu walked towards the special car bound for the manned space launch site, and smiled back to greet the crowd who saw them off.

  "The five-star red flag flutters in the wind, what a resounding song of victory, singing about our dear motherland, from now on to prosperity and strength..." The loud and clear singing resounded over Yuanmengyuan, and some people couldn't help crying when they sang.

  The bright moon is in the sky, and the stars are shining.

The courtesy motorcycle cleared the way and escorted the three astronauts to the launch site.

  "I wish you success!" "I wish you triumph!"

  On both sides of the road, people's cheers, sonorous gongs and drums, and melodious matouqin... The scene was very lively. In this cold winter, people used their own methods to let the astronauts go to space with warmth.

  The tall and majestic launch tower stands proudly on the Gobi Desert, and the Long March 2F rocket is ready to go, pointing to the sky.

  "5, 4, 3, 2, 1, ignite!" At 23:08 on the 29th, with the loud and firm command of No. The Shenzhou 15 spacecraft went straight to the sky, drawing a beautiful arc in the sky.

  "Dongfeng optics, USB, and radar tracking are normal, telemetry signals are normal, Dongfeng flight is normal..."

  The Shenzhou 15 manned spacecraft and the rocket successfully separated and entered the predetermined orbit. The flight crew is in good condition.

There was a burst of warm applause in the command display hall.

  "I declare that the manned mission of Shenzhou 15 is a complete success!" said Zou Lipeng, Director of Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center.

  At this time, in the vast space 400 kilometers away from the earth, the crew of the Shenzhou 14 astronauts have made preparations and are looking forward to the "space rendezvous" with the crew of the Shenzhou 15 astronauts.
